Yachats Halloween Walk
5 km. (3.1 miles) rated easy, or 10 km. (6.2 miles) rated moderately easy.
Every other year, the Yachats Coastal Gems Volkssport Club sponsors a Halloween Walk. Expect novel "tricks" and "treats".
The 5 km. route is level with smooth walking near the ocean and through town. The 10 km. route does this plus also goes up and down the sloping backdrop of Yachats on some rough and some smooth paths. Parts of both routes are on the 804 Trail and the Ya'Xaik Trail.
Those people wanting to carpool should meet at 8 a.m. at the Willamalane Adult Activity Center, 215 West C Street in Springfield. Return there will be at about 4:30 p.m. Each rider pays the driver $5 to help cover car expenses. Following the walk, the carpoolers will probably pick a restaurant in Yachats or Florence to have lunch together; however, lunch arrangements are always optional for each rider/walker.
Those people traveling to Yachats on their own should plan to meet the carpoolers at about 10 a.m. at the walk start point, the Lions Club building on 4th Street in Yachats (about two blocks west of highway 101). Or, they may do the walk on their own, starting anytime between 8 a.m. and noon from the Lions Club.
